Friday afternoon, family and friends of Terrilyn Monette joined teachers and students at Woodland West Elementary School in Harvey, the school where Monette teaches, for a balloon release.
Organizers say they wanted to remember Monette on this last day of school before the summer break. They also want to keep the missing teacher case in the public’s eye.
“Today is the last official day for teachers. And before we ended the school year, we wanted to send some good wishes, some hope, some prayers, all of the love in our hearts, for Terrilyn,” said Amy Hoyle who is the principal at Woodland West.
Monette was last seen in the early morning hours of March 2nd when she left Parlay’s Bar in Lakeview in her car. Searches of area waterways for the car have netted no results. Monette’s family feels she may have been abducted and is maintaining hope that she is still alive.
